Temperament and Eating Characteristics: General Measures and Interrelationships provides a comprehensive description of the various ways people eat, and how these individual eating styles relate to personality. Dr. Mehrabian introduces a new approach to the study of eating and presents innovative measures of eating and personal temperament. Based on large samples from normal populations, the research calls attention to the complex interrelationship between aspects of the personality and eating. General measures of temperament provide a basis for comparing the results of this important effort with past research on arousal, temperament, and emotions.
